Summary: I bought the D-Link router because I thought the printer port would be useful, and the price was right. I spent 1/2 day off from work, on line with my DSL ISP and D-Link and the Westell modem tech support teams. My ISP provide dynamic IP addresses.
Summary: The D-LINK 713P worked for about 10 days and then the connectivity dropped every day progressively till it finally stopped working. I have an Orinoco Gold Card and can no longer connect to the 713P even when sitting right next to it. I have tried connecting with a Linksys card with no luck.
Router didn't work and neither did D-Link tech support
R. Andrews, Amazon

Summary: When I received the router, it would not transmit a wireless signal. So I promptly called the tech support number (a toll call, bummer) listed in the quick start guide. I reached a recording that said to call another number (a toll-free call, yippee, and good thing b/c I would end up spending hours...
Summary: I bought one of this in Jan. 2003, then the trouble began. The wireless signal was very unstable and I never got a full 11M connection even the laptop was within 10 feet from router. The router even dead frequently after I changed the configuration with the browser.
Summary: I was going to replace my reliable old Linksys non-wireless router with this D-Link one. I chose it partly because of the integrated print server. In general it worked fine for most applications. However, I also use it to access my company's network from home using VPN. This did not work well.
Does Not Support HP Printers or ATI Video Card Drivers
Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 September 2002
Summary: The 713P does not support HP printers and is not supportable if you are using ATI video drivers - these are the excuses used by their technical support team after several hours of troubleshooting to determine why my print server, after six months of pretty good performance, had stopped letting me...
Summary: Same problem as other people here have stated. Worked some what for the first two weeks, though my connection to one of my computers constantly dropped off. Now the unit is locked up and doesnt function at all. Customer support? LOL - Documentation lacking... Buy at your own risk
Summary: Despite 10 hours of work, I was unable to get this unit to work. I followed all of the advice that other reviewers posted - upgraded the driver/firmware, rebooted the router/system, etc. Nothing.
Summary: Customer service was generally not helpful. For one thing, they do not seem to have a checklist or any kind of strong customer database to systematically walk you through steps to solve your problem.
